Who We Are

Our wealth of experience lies with our expert employees. Since 2000, we have established a strong reputation by fostering a highly experienced and competent team consisting of ex-military and commercial staff. This has been the prominent key to our success, along with our commitment to outstanding service.

Future Growth

We have been expanding!

Fostering a life-long passion for aviation safety and survival, the combined efforts of Greg and his knowledgeable staff have resulted in the expansion of the company and the delivery of ongoing timely successful results.

Our Canberra, ACT facility; opened in November 2018 and is a consolidation of our operations in a more central logistic focused location so that we can better support our key defence and commercial Australian and International clients. This new direction for Red Baron ALSE means a full-service division along some of our product lines with greater opportunity for all in the defence and aviation industries.

Our proven history of quality assurance outcomes and specialised Defence and Commercial helicopter industry projects, have been critical to our success.

Consequently, our company’s industry rapport and quality is second to none.

We look forward to welcoming your custom.
